ChamberRVA Mayoral Forum, Watch, Listen and Stream October 6
On October 6, Richmond mayoral candidates Kim Gray, Justin Griffin, Alexsis Rodgers and Levar Stoney will discuss pressing local issues in the ChamberRVA Mayoral Forum. Curt Autry and Diane Walker of NBC12 and VPM News reporter Roberto Roldan will moderate the candidate's conversation on housing, civil rights, the pandemic and more. This forum is brought to you by ChamberRVA in partnership with VPM News and NBC12.
The debate will include questions from the Citizens Agenda, an initiative by VPM News to collect responses from the community answering the question: What do you want the candidates to talk about as they compete for votes?
Over the course of four weeks, VPM collected nearly 350 submissions across Virginia. Responses included topics about:
- Compromise, Values and Working Together
- Rebuilding / Recovery from the COVID-19 Pandemic (healthcare, economy, education)
- Equity and Economy
- Criminal Justice and Police Reform
- Voter Protections and Government Reforms
The topics from the survey will be used in ongoing election coverage.
Survey respondents also included concerns about misinformation and keeping media outlets focused on the facts. With this in mind, VPM is developing media literacy guides for listeners to learn how to fact check and detect misinformation leading up to the election.
